Tazo the sea otter, who made his public debut back in June, was one of many aquarium residents to receive a pumpkin to snack on ahead of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s “Ascarium” festivities.

For three weekends in October, the aquarium will host a variety of Halloween-themed activities including magic shows, story telling and a “haunted Sea-fari” adventure. Kids in costumes get in free.
